I knew when I was behind the camera car, so I knew where to look. Just had to wait for it to show up.

Meet RoadRash!

On the way to work this AM (second ride to work day this year!) and in the middle of the lane was this poor fellow. I went back and retrieved him and he rode the handlebars for the rest of the commute. Considering the road grime and that his nose and eyes are gone from him being run over a couple of times, I decided his name was RoadRash. He'll get a bath, corneal transplants and something cute on the front of his face for the girls to kiss. Then he's coming to his first RDV to lose his innocence.

I'm hoping to do another scouting run this Sat including lunch at that Farmers? BBQ place on 167.

Also....I just bought a new tent and am experiencing the temptation to go try it out at Black Bear this Friday night.........if the weather clears out early enough.....

Updates:

Kitty is good except for an exhaust leak!

As usual, I imagine I will be leading the 3rd Annual Mindless Wandering and Miscellaneous Scenery Tours. Fe Woman always complains that we don't take enough pictures and she also likes old buildings and cemeteries so guess what? She rides kinda' slow and doesn't particularly like riding on loose gravel so this is nOOb, big bike and poor riding skill friendly but we will ride any gravel and hard pack dirt whenever possible.

Friday will probably be a picture taking ride as I may have a new GoPro and it will certainly be broken by Saturday.


No single track planned as my Tiger is a fat pig and hell to pick up!

However, if Fe Wifey-poo will venture off road, I'm on it!


This ride will be wholly unplanned and rely on paper topo maps and GPS for route planning.

Ok, probably no GPS; this will be full analog! Meaning actual maps, directions drawn on napkins and "hey, where does that go?"


We will leave when we get around to it and a pre-ride meeting will take place at the Area 52 base camp. We will eat when we feel like it and return when we can figure out how to get back.

This may require group participation?

This ride will include members of the MORAN Nation so those susceptible to developing butt-hurt with little provocation or have an aversion to shenanigans and a damn good time should probably find a winery tour.

I would also love to "lead in legs" meaning that I have no F'n idea where we are going and would love to have others as lost as me in front!
